Kitchen Wishin'

I'm craving a back splash in our kitchen. When we moved in, the kitchen had been redone the previous year. It was love at first sight. After living with it for a bit, I realized something was missing... a back splash. Now, I don't know if a back splash is completely necessary, but I do think it makes the space look finished and well done. At first, I was all about the glass subway tiles (we have these in our bathroom and love them). After further consideration, I think a classic large white porcelain subway tile is the way to go. Here is my inspiration.

Birthday Thanks

Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend for bringing home Sprinkles cupcakes for my birthday last night. He also scored big with this watch. Thanks, mister.

What a guy!

My Christmas Decor

This weekend we finally got around to getting a tree and getting our home ready for the holidays. This year I went with a natural theme in creams, greens and whites with a bit of silver glam here and there.

Hollywood wanted to help

Our fireplace got a little love!

Love these white ceramic acorns from Crate and Barrel

This one is from Pottery Barn and I have to say, it's one of my favorites.

This reindeer has a wood grain pattern

No presents under the tree yet, but soon, hopefully (if I can get my act together!)

Madeline Weinrib on Gilt

Loving Madeline Weinrib's rugs and pillows on Gilt today. I've had my eye out for a zig-zag rug for our front entrance. Unfortunately, these are too large for the space.

Charlie & Chloe

Meet Charlie and Chloe. Quite possibly the cutest and sweetest kids ever. Holiday time means family time, so I've been seeing a lot of these two.

I love to give books as gifts - especially as a new baby gift or for the holidays. Here are a few of my go-to's... and some more pics of Charlie and Chloe, because they are so darn cute!
